Why You Should Choose this North York Family Dentistry?

Taking proper care of your teeth may begin with daily brushing and flossing, but dental health is something that requires support from a professional. That’s why you should seek out a North York family dentist who can help you along the way. Our team has what it takes to ensure your dental health remains high as the years pass. Here are some of the reasons why we are your best option in the area.

Dedication to Ongoing Dental Education

Each member of our team is fully trained and educated in their respective roles. Along with the initial training that is required for proper certification, our philosophy involves keeping up with all the latest in dental technology and treatments. When you choose us for your family dentistry needs, you can rest assured we are not resting on what we learned many years ago. Along with that training, we are constantly learning about and implementing the most current methods to ensure you have the highest level of dental care.

A Wealth of Experience

As much as we value continuing education, we place an equal emphasis on the practical experience we offer our patients. When you come through our doors and need anything from a dental cleaning to restorative dental surgery, we will know what to do. Our bank of knowledge is the ideal mix of learning and doing. Whatever type of procedure you need, we’ve successfully done if before many times. If you have questions or concerns, we can provide the answers from a vantage point of experience as well as education.

The Ideal Balance Between Appearance and General Dental Health

We understand that patients walk through our doors with multiple goals. One is to alleviate pain and correct any dental problem that may exist. The other is to emerge from the treatment with teeth that look healthy and attractive. That’s why we always strive to serve our patients on both measures.

When you choose us, rest assured that we will come up with solutions that ease your pain, restore your teeth, and leave them looking better than they have in some time. Our first goal is to identify the reason for the pain and resolve it. After that, we will talk with you about cosmetic touches that improve appearance even as they protect your teeth.

For example, a severe cavity may require removing quite a bit of decayed matter. Once that is done, we’ll insert the filling. To restore the appearance of the tooth, we may recommend a crown over the filling and maybe even a veneer to add a little strength to what’s left of the natural tooth.

Are you in search of a dental clinic that truly values your business and will go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy the best in dental health? Call us today at 866-806-7752 and arrange for a full dental examination. Once the exam is complete, we can discuss options for treatments, general dental hygiene, or whatever it will take to keep your teeth healthy and attractive.

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
